out of time and choices

As I sit here on Sunday night at nearly 8:00, in my heart I want to put up a recipe post but I really don’t have it in me. I had a busy (work-wise) weekend but also a kind of shitty (sorry, it’s still my favorite word) personal weekend. In fact, after working the morning away, I spent all of the rest of Sunday, in avoidance, watching a great show on Netflix called “Dead To Me” Which coincidently, was picked up for a second season just this week.

I highly recommend it and I thank Lisa and Jen for recommending it to me. xoox

Choice #1 – Artichoke Dish

So how about I give you some choices for recipe posts for the coming days? I’ll show you a few photos and you can leave me comments telling me which ones you are most interested in getting the recipes for. I’m sure that eventually, I’ll post the recipe for each and every single one, but how you respond (or choose not to respond) will help me decide which to post first.

Then once I’ve posted the recipe, I’ll like it to the photo below for easy reference.

#2 Tortilla Soup

Several of these recipes are long time favorites that I featured in my last series of classes at Les Gourmettes Cooking School.

#3 Jalapeño Jelly

And some of the others are dishes I made for an early birthday dinner that Peggy and I hosted on Thursday night for our sweet Anne.

#4 – Aisan Style Halibut

In fact, TODAY is Anne’s actual birthday! Happy Birthday, Sweet Anne. I adore you! xoxo

#5 Pasta Carbonara
#6 Asparagus Toast

So, please leave me a comment and let me know which recipe you want first. Or leave me a comment with the order you want all eight of them to run.

#7 – Roasted Berries with Mascarpone

In the meantime, Love you, Anne! xoxo

#8 – Summer Berry Trifle
Love this girl, Anne! And love the girl who gets the credit for the photo, Peggy. xoxo

Wishing all of you, and myself for that matter, a wonderful week!

Dead To Me- Loved it! I had a shitty weekend too- health issues with my son- might be spending summer in Chicago with my son! There’s an upside, I guess 🙂 I hope everything is ok with you. Anyway, I, for one, would love a good Chicken Tortilla Soup recipe. Have a. great day!

Denise, my weekend was just small stuff that will go away, I’m sorry to hear about your boy! I’ll keep him and you in my prayers. xoxo

Hi Linda, sorry to hear that it wasn’t exactly a great weekend for you. Hope things are getting better. As far as recipes, they all look great! I’m always on the lookout for good fish recipe, and would love to try to make the Asian style halibut, and the desserts 🙂 Thanks!
